Ana Ivanovic is said to be dating German soccer player Bastian Schweinsteiger. The fresh sports couple is on the cover of German tabloid Bild and even though the news is still in the rumor category, we know that where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
The biggest proof that we do have so far is this photo of the two holding hands while strolling the streets of New York City and the fact that Ivanovic nominated Schweinsteiger in the Ice Backet Challenge, while Schweinsteiger nominated Ivanovic’s brother Milos. It can’t be a coincidence, and they didn’t hang out before! According to Bild, the relationship has lasted several weeks now.
Ivanovic has dated a number of athletes, but the 30-year old Bayern Munich midfielder is her first venture into the world of football. The Serbian beauty put a checkmark on tennis with Fernando Verdasco, then with Adam Scott it turned out that a golfer is also not a good option, while most recently she tried her luck with a countryman and basketball player Ivan Paunic. Novak Djokovic’s rich friend Mark Stillitano was also in the mix.
When it comes to Schweinsteiger’s dating history, he used to date German model Sarah Brandner since 2007 and they lived together in Munich. As I read in Serbian tabloid paper Kurir, Sarah even supported Bastian at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. So, the breakup is quite fresh.
Not commenting on the swirl of updates about her love life, Ana has recently shared a photo of the Tokyo cityscape and just said how she’s enjoying mochi (Japanese rice cake). She’s in the city for the Tokyo Pan Pacific Open tournament which starts on September 15th.
